    Well, whomever his grand dad is, I'm glad they revealed that he was a legacy after we saw him flex his muscle/character some. Usually, they intro legacy characters as if that's al they need character/legitimacy wise.

    We're talking about a guy called Antoine. I say it's a 50% chance between the black dude and the French dude.

    Yes. Can that please die with the old forums?

    On topic, the recent episode was great. Deathlok needs to be damaged so roboty bits show, but his performance is cool as hell. I hope that his head gets damaged, revealing metal, but also making the bomb stop working so he can be an antihero in the future of the show. It'd be a neat way to move him forward.

    I wonder how Skye's physiology will react to the Kree blood? She could be doomed to insanity, which could be interesting. But she's an 084, so it's likely nowhere near that simple... great twist with Coulson being the man behind his own rebirth, but not knowing it. Really cool.

    Also, the "you're a nazi" bit was awesome. Skye totally ripped him a new one- the tension in that scene was fantastic. And that headbutt! I hope he continues on as her nemesis after Garrett is dealt with.

    There's a bunch of reasons why I prefer AoS to any other particular comic-book TV show that might also be airing right now (and note I didn't say 'better'; just why I prefer it). But one little moment in this week's episode just kind of summed it all up for me. It was Coulson's line when Talbot infiltrated the base; "If I come out will you shoot me? Cause then... I won't come out."

    Yeah, my bad. I posted that as an inside joke from the other forum. I had no intention on it becoming a topic again.

    It makes me wonder:
    1) Was Cap thawed out at the Guest House?
    2) Were they about to hit him with the Jesus Juice when he revived (or did they hit him with it)?
    3) Were they about to harvest his Jesus Juices?
    I'm thinking this one. It would make sense for them to wonder after Cap was revived if it was possible to revive mere mortals. Maybe they even took some blood but it didn't work like that and in trying to revive the super soldier program somehow got an alien in the mix and it went from there. Maybe Kree(?) have regenerative powers and so the idea to use them on fallen heros was born.
    Now that's an interesting thought. Was the entire T.A.H.I.T.I. project born out of Cap's resuscitation?

    "Hey," Fury says to himself, "if this dead guy can survive the frozen-food-section treatment for this long, is there a way that we could duplicate that for other key players? Coulson: go figure that out for me."

    I think there's a certain style of humor that Marvel is pretty much going to put in everything, regardless of how dark things are. And for me it works.

    Agents of Shield is definately MUST WATCH tv for me now. It really became an entirely different show post Winter Soldier.

    Ward's story reminds me of Erik Josten.

    right now anyway.
    HYDRA's current power structure issues could be a potential movie or show in itself.

    In the comics, HYDRA's often been portrayed as a highly splintered entity, more loosely organized than tightly governed, and more ruled by the individual ambitions of its cell leaders than by any greater system or purpose, except when oversee by Baron Strucker. So:
    1) The MCU portrayal is not at all out of step with HYDRA's basic nature.
    2) It will be interesting to see how well run Strucker's organization is in the Avengers sequel.

    Good points.

    Now, Garrett's cell seems to be well run, but it seems more aligned with his own interests, so he's a maverick---got to be more than one of him, as well as the more disciplined ones that can be dominated by Strucker.

    That's exactly how the individual cells are supposed to run in terrorist organizations. The cell is given a broad objective, and near-infinite discretion in how to do it. Basically, Strucker (or Pierce or whoever is next up on the org chart) tells Garrett "Take down SHIELD. I don't care how you do it, and don't really want to know. Just make it happen." Garrett then goes off and does his own thing, furthering not only his goals but the goals of HYDRA as a whole.
    ...Expecting the Spanish Inquisition.

    That was a laugh out loud moment for me.
